The Mustangs returned to the field after a tough loss to Centennial last Friday 11-8.
Welcoming back Chris Opolka, who has been on the DL the whole season, the Mustangs were just hoping to get 3-4 innings out of their starter. But he did way more than that. He gave them 6 complete innings, and left with a 7-4 lead. Koby Millner came in and closed shop getting the final three outs in the seventh.
The offense of the game would come mostly from Isaiah Blaylock, who in the first inning, took a 1-0 pitch DEEP over the right field fence, to give the MUSTANGS a 3-0 lead. Then in the third inning, he came up with two runners aboard and hit a 3-2, DEEP over the right-center field fence to give the MUSTANGS an important 7-0 lead. The Panthers would battle back, but fall short, losing 7-4 to the MUSTANGS of THE RIDGE!!!
Kyle Gaura went 2-3, Justin Lee went 2-2, RBI, 2 runs, Opolka 1-3, and Blaylock 2-2 BB, 6 RBI, 2 runs.
The VARSITY and J.V. MUSTANGS will be back in action, Thursday against Desert Oasis. The VARSITY away at D.O. And the J.V. will host the J.V. of D.O.
GREAT WIN MUSTANGS !!! SEE YA AT THE FIELD !!!
